Exciting opportunities for Area Engineers & Electrotechnical Associate Assessors to cover various locations across the UK!

TalentTech Recruitment are currently working on a number of vacancies with Certsure, the organisation behind NICEIC.

Please read on if you’re interested!

The Company

Certsure offers industry-leading certification services, Building Regulations Schemes, products, and support to the construction industry. We are the organisation behind the market-leading brand NICEIC, and we are dedicated to providing professional services and certification to a wide range of customers across the building services sector.

Quality is the foundation of everything we do. And as a result, many of our products are Government-recognised and United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) approved.

From the technically excellent assessors to service advisors who really “get” our customers, we’re always on the lookout for talented people to join our team.

The Role

We’re currently looking for Area Engineers and Electrotechnical Associate Assessors to cover various locations across the UK.

In this role, you’ll be responsible for building and developing relationships with potential applicants seeking registration and engaging with various other professional bodies and stakeholders to promote the many services our company offers.

You’ll be undertaking periodic assessments for all customers registered under our electrotechnical schemes to assess their competence, their resources and ensure they comply with the rules and technical standards required by the electrical industry.

You’ll therefore be required to work independently whilst following clear instructions and guidance.

Your role will include:

  • Undertaking assessments for all customers registered for competent person schemes.
  • Assessing customers’ competence and resources to ensure they comply with the scheme requirements and technical standards.
  • Periodically assessing them, to determine their eligibility for continued registration.
  • Demonstrating a high level of technical competence over a wide range of electrical categories.

The Candidate

You’ll need to demonstrate a high level of technical competence over a wide range of electrical installations, so detailed knowledge of BS 7671 and related codes of practice is essential, along with knowledge of accreditation criteria. You’ll also need to have a full UK driving licence.

As you’ll be dealing with our customers every day, you’ll need to have excellent communication and customer service skills, with the ability to build relationships with people at all levels, both internally and externally. Report writing, numeracy and IT skills, in particular Microsoft Office, are essential, along with excellent time management skills and the ability to prioritise your workload.

Previous employees have come from a Qualified Supervisor or Electrical Projects Manager or Electrical Contracts Manager background, or from an electrical teaching background.

Essential qualifications:

  • Level 3 qualification in an electrical discipline as a minimum
  • 18th edition
  • Initial Verification & Periodic Inspection & Testing

Desirable qualifications:

  • Ideally have completed an electrical apprenticeship or similar scheme.
  • Design, Erection and Verification of Electrical Installations, Electrical ONC, or Electrical HNC will be extremely advantageous.
  • Membership of the IET or CIBSE.

The Package – Area Engineers (full-time, permanent roles)

We have a great benefits package which includes 25 days annual leave, enhanced company sick pay, private medical insurance, contributory pension scheme and much more!

  • Circa £47,000 per annum basic salary
  • Company Car or Personal Car Allowance
  • Home Office Allowance

The Package – Electrotechnical Associate Assessors (self-employed roles)

For those looking for a different way of working we have options for you too.

We would love to explore opportunities for those who enjoy the benefits of self-employment, giving you flexibility to work on other projects too.

  • Circa £290 day rate

If the above sounds like something you’d be interested in, then we’d love to hear from you! Please ask for Dave at TalentTech Recruitment.

A big thankyou to Josh and Dave at TalentTech Recruitment who have helped me secure my new role. Their help and support through this challenging time has been invaluable and without their input I very much doubt I would have got this position. I have let my new employer know of their input and will happily recommend them for all future recruitment.

Thomas Davies - Customer Success Executive

Josh & John were very timely throughout the process, and both very easy to talk with. Constructive input without the need to follow up for information made communication very practical. John was very considerate and professional, which helped put my mind at ease. I have now secured a brilliant role in an excellent company with the help of a faultless process from TalentTech.

Dominic Protacio - Sales Development Representative

Its great to see a recruitment company that listens to the client and explains the process to us. The project to hire a National Sales Manager wasn’t without its challenges in this competitive market for candidates but the team at TalentTech kept us updated and informed throughout the hiring process.

Martin Reppion - Business Development Manager

Thank you to the whole Team at TalentTech for the quality of the shortlist you have presented to me yesterday. Four of the candidates were excellent and I only wanted to take three back for 2nd interviews so it is going to give me a real headache having to choose three for final interview.

National Sales Manager – UK Construction Manufacturer

We have worked with TalentTech for the last 6 months and they have supported our transition as we aim to strengthen certain areas of the UK business. What started as filling one of our vacant area sales roles that we had struggled with has given us the opportunity to get TalentTech engaged to successfully help in other divisions. Its been refreshing to find a company that just “get” recruitment having had a number of negative experience with previous suppliers.

HR Director – Technical Scientific & Laboratory Manufacturer

What a great find! Thanks John, for providing us with our latest Sales Development Representative for the West Midlands & Warwickshire area. We look forward to the candidate starting and enjoying their sales career with us. I will certainly recommend you to my colleagues throughout the business.

Its been a pleasure to work with Team TalentTech on our latest planned recruitment campaign, we found the process to be smooth and were kept informed throughout the hiring of our latest engineer. In a difficult market with a specific brief they were able to provide a strong shortlist giving us a number of options. Big thanks particularly to Nick for his help and professionalism.

Technical Service Manager – European Packaging Equipment Supplier

Thank you to Nick and the team at TalentTech recruitment for your help on our recent recruitment project. You were up against 2 other recruitment suppliers but the quality of the candidates and the service to both ourselves and the successful candidate was excellent. You have proved to be a valuable partner and will now be our chosen preferred supplier for all UK recruitment.

National Sales Manager – Global Manufacturer of Industrial Capital Equipment

John and Nick were very helpful in supporting me on the recruitment process. They were very accommodating during my out of hours office calls and responded to emails and messages very promptly. They ensured that the company was fit for purpose for my needs and demands and encouraged me to Pursue this company which being part of Filtermist now has been challenging and fulfilling. John and Nick are professional, pro-active and pleasant gentlemen to be involved with. I would certainly recommend them as a recruiter both from a candidate and a hiring managers perspective

Manpreet Maan - Proposals Engineer

I work with a number of other agencies but John is by far the most professional and is at the top of my preferred supplier list. He not only knows our business and has a real knack of finding the candidates that have the right skills, attitudes and behaviours that fit our culture, but he goes out of his way to get the know the hiring managers and then simplifies the recruitment process for them. As a result of this, he managed to fill a senior level role flawlessly and, although it was a difficult task, he found a truly talented member of our leadership team who is already adding value to their team and the business overall.

MD – Global Engineering OEM

Nick is a consummate professional and his help has been invaluable throughout my recent job-hunting process. Having not been on the job market for a while, the interview and presentation advice he gave me made a huge difference and helped me to secure the role I really wanted. I really appreciate all the effort and assistance and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.

Regional Sales Manager – Technology

The recruitment process can often be arduous but we found TalentTech to be honest and transparent throughout, which is very refreshing and we’re pleased to have found a genuine supplier that can support our business going forward.

Service Manager – Scientific Instrumentation

From first contact with John, he was open, friendly & offered some great advice. Throughout the process he was efficient & diligent with his communication/feedback & having this from a recruiter made the interview/job change process far easier - which is a rare thing! I thoroughly recommend John & his business when you’re looking for a new role/career change

Will McCullough - Area Sales Manager

I am absolutely delighted with my new role and company. I couldn’t have wished to join a better organisation and am very grateful for all the help and support John gave me in making it happen. All the interview advice was invaluable.

National Sales Manager – Chemical manufacturer

TalentTech have presented me with some fantastic opportunities to take my career aspirations forward. They have been dedicated and professional and have really added tremendous value throughout.

Technical Manager – Engineering Services Company

I have been working with recruitment consultancies for many years and have had mixed experiences in terms of quality of service as well as value for money. Working with John has been quite a change. John and I formed a strategic alliance for the recruitment of high-quality sales professionals. This was only possible because of the effort and resources that were put into gaining a comprehensive understanding of our business and the market sectors we operate in. John co-ordinated our recruitment needs and has proved to be highly successful and cost effective. I have no hesitation in recommending John and TalentTech as a preferred supplier and business partner.
